Wakefield Skate 2010


As ever had a great day at the annual Wakefield skate competition, after weeks of terrible weather the sun finally came out shinin’ bright all day, drew a pretty large crowd too. As a long time skater in Wake I still can’t believe we have such a top facility in the city, almost 2 years after opening the chav element have moved on to pastures new (rather than smashing bottles and throwing crap everywhere…) leaving the park for the skaters and bikers.

Standout skater on the day had to be Mike Wright, only seen him in the 2009 Sidewalk big push DVD I wasn’t blown away, obviously talented but sketchy with it. Having seen him skate in the flesh my opinion changed 180, very smooth style, interesting bag of tricks including crazy tech moves I thought died in the early 90’s (switch frontside 180 front foot impossible???) . Of course it goes without saying I’m also loving the orange Nike Bruin SB’s…………
